Glass Door, a career services firm, released the results of a survey conducted before Zynga’s quiet period, and CEO Marcus Pincus only had a 46 percent approval rating far below the average rating of 62 for most CEOs. The best of executives, like the late Steve Jobs, were around 97 percent; by contrast, the rating for Pincus is akin to recently fired Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz and former HP boss Leo Apotheker.
